Keeping hands clean through improved hand hygiene is one of the most important steps one can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. A study was conducted to assess the hand hygiene practice among school children. The objectives were to assess the practice level of hand hygiene among school children, to determine the association between practice of hand hygiene with their selected socio demographic variables of school children. A non-experimental research approach with descriptive research design was chosen for this study. By using purposive sampling technique a total of 100 samples were included for the study. The test was conducted by check list. The data were recorded and coded. The data analysis was done by using descriptive and inferential statistics. The result revealed that there is relatively good practice of hand washing among school children. The study implies that creating more awareness on hand washing will prevent the occurrence of infection among school children.
